Grand Rapids, Mich., May 16, 2013 – In their critically-acclaimed memoir, Todd and Tara Storch share their heartbreaking journey that began on what should have been the family ski trip of a lifetime. Instead, they found themselves making the decision to donate their 13-year-old-daughter’s organs. The Storches share the hope and strength they found through the gift of organ donation in Taylor’s Gift: A Courageous Story of Giving Life and Renewing Hope (April 2013, Hardcover, 9780800721886, ebook:, $21.99).

To continue shining a light for those enduring their own ocean of grief, Revell worked with YouVersion to create a 21-Day Reading Plan titled Hope: A Courageous Journey of Faith. Excerpts from Taylor’s Gift paired with scripture and daily reflections take the reader through their own journey of hope during despair or tragedy.
